Game 5 is now an absolute must win for the Cavs.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the Cavs now 0-4 in Toronto this season. No excuse for letting the Raptors make a series of this. Perimeter defense and Love missing the flight to Toronto doomed the Cavs.
I've fared pretty well in fantasy football for the last 5 season simply picking up whichever defense and kicker is facing Cleveland every week.
I got 51, everything prior to the 80s is mostly due to my father telling me the legends of guys like Tom Matte and Jim Parker.
Worked out just fine for Eli Apple. He was pretty good...
Hard to believe that the Sharks were so abysmal at home during the regular season, yet Preds couldn't even notch 1 win in 4 tries in the series. Gonna be a very important offseason.
After my Preds missed their flight to San Jose for Game 7, I'm too disheartened to watch this round.
In short, Ohio State is pretty good at everything.
I remember waiting until late June-early July for the Ahtlon previews to drop, right before the NCCA game. Now, they're out before Memorial Day. Say what you want, Athlon is by far my favorite CFB preview. I always pay the extra shipping cost to get my B1G and OSU Cover National Preview, and it's always worth it.
You forgot Tim Beck.
Mid to upper 70s, clear skies, and a light breeze, if you like that sort of thing.
21 redshirt freshmen blows my mind. I've never heard of a team having so many. There's going to be plenty of intrigue involving roster/scholarship management the next 2 seasons.
The encouraging thing is to see the overwhelming amount of talent on this team. Wow!
This is where the argument actually gets really interesting, because LeBron one-on-one would be a matchup nightmare. Jordan was great, but in a head-to-head scenario, I'd give LeBron's combination of speed, power, and overall athleticism the edge, just as I would give it to Jordan over Magic.
The one that came with an SI subscription, circa 1992?
Thanks for the link. Hadn't read that before.
I know. But UC, Louisville, and Memphis spent around 30 years in the same conference, from the Missouri Valley to the Metro to CUSA. It would be nice to at least see two of them renew their rivalry.
True, but it'd be fun to see UC-Memphis back in the same conference. The UC-Louisville-Memphis round robin in basketball was always a very underrated rivalry.
I heard yesterday that ESPN, after giving UT their $15 million payout, actually loses about $10 million annually on the Longhorn Network. Ouch.
I've always thought that (if they were to leave the big 12) UT to the B1G makes a ton of sense. If it's a package deal, I'm not sure that the B1G would want Oklahoma, after the AAU issue with Nebraska. I'm sure that fans would be fine with it, but it's ultimately up to the University Presidents and I see them preferring schools (not even necessarily athletic programs) like Virginia, UNC, and Kansas. Personally, I wouldn't mind the B1G grabbing an ACC school that is in the SEC's backyard - Georgia Tech. GTech has a solid athletics tradition, is located in a major metro area, and has elite academics. Makes a ton of sense to me.
It's crazy how overlooked Kareem always is in these discussions. For some reason, I never think of him as a top 5 player. Maybe it was just the timing of his career, or perhaps that he was the Big Fundamental before Duncan. Never flashy, but almost always dominant.
